Purple Cafe and Wine Bar - Woodinville Ratings and Reviews

I had a couple friends come into town, both wine drinkers, and a co-worker recommended Purple Cafe and Wine Bar. I had reservations for 5:30pm, but had to call, twice, and push it back to 6:30p and then 7:00p due to a delay on a ferry ride. The restaurant was so nice and accommodating. When we finally arrived, we were seated immediately, even with a few folks waiting. We were very impressed. The food, service and wine were all outstanding. I will definitely return.

The food was really good, and the service was outstanding. The only thing about our dinner date that was less than great was the noise level in the restaurant. Oh, and there is next to no room by the door if more than two people need to wait for a table. Still, my wife and I had an enjoyable dinner.

We've been to Purple many times and have always enjoyed the experience (overall)! Never been disappointed. This visit however was very different. The service was very slow, granted it was Valentine's Day but in general , the waitress was inattentive (I think she was the only server for the entire upstairs - 8-10 tables). The wine prices seem much higher than usual (they do not have a house white or red) and my dinner, in particular, was really disappointing. I've had their flat bread pizza before but this one seemed like the dough was previously frozen (more like a deep dish pizza than a flat bread pizza). Most disappointing was the $6 "house made sourdough bread". I figure if they are charging for bread it must be incredible! This is a new menu item since the last time we were there - when the bread was free. However, I wouldn't purchase it again, it was incredibly hard (more like french than sourdough). All in all we had 3 glasses of wine, the $6 bread, the brie appetizer, the flat bread and my husband's filet and we were out of there for a mere $150+tip.

Purple is perfect for any occasion - no matter how casual or special, you will leave feeling like you've really treated yourself. The food is prepared to perfection. On our most recent visit my husband and I both had the Wagyu steak and it was melt-in-your mouth good. I also highly recommend the Crème Brulee. Our server, Bryan, was the perfect mix of professional, warm and approachable.

As always, very good food and wine! It is unfortunate with all the cement and glass that there isn't something to keep the noise down a little bit. It was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation. Granted, there was a big party in the back room… Maybe some doors to keep the noise in the back would be a good idea.

My husband and I went to Purple for a date night. The atmosphere was romantic, with low lighting and walls of lit candles. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, but we did have to wait a while because it was super busy. The wine selection is large, but it's not a full bar and no prosecco, only bubbly rose, so that was a little disappointing. Our appetizer was tasty, but small. The most disappointing part was the main dish that we ordered. We ordered pork belly, and it was overdone and super hard in some parts, and had way too much beans and no other ingredient to balance the dish. For $25, it definitely was not worth it.

Purple is has consistent quality of food/menu. I've been to their multiple locations a number of times. This one is woodinville is particularly noisy. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation so it was a bad choice on my part to catch up with friends in from out of town. Food was good not over the top fabulous. Waitress was friendly but not very attentive. Our friend ordered a beer and it never came...when asked...she went to find out only to report they were out of that particular brew (which was a special on the menu). The restaurant should have comp'd him a beer....but they didn't.

People come here for the wine and the food. It's a moderately priced eatery with an extensive wine list.
Parking on a Sunday night was a problem. We had to park a long way from the restaurant, then walk in the dark, through some buildings to get back to the restaurant. Also, the noise level was at a pitch where the three of us had difficulties carrying on a conversation.

Went here for a first date and the food was good and the decor was very pleasing. The server was helpful when it came to suggestions on food and was knowledgeable about the wine options. One downside to the restaurant was the noise level. Because of the open concept and open seating the place was rather loud and we both had to raise our voices to be heard. The only other negative was since the lights were low for ambiance...we both had a difficult time reading the menu and wine list. Overall though a nice place.

Two things: order the spicy prawns (and ask for extra sauce!!) and ask to have Autumn for your server...she is a joyful presence, and really good at her job. I've been to Purple many times, and always find the menu a little challenging....everything sounds okay, nothing sounds amazing, so choosing is hard. The lobster mac and cheese is fantastic if you don't mind eating a gigantic bowl of mac and cheese for dinner....great wine list too!!

We have been going to the Purple for years. Always good food and good service. The menu has a good variety so I think everyone can find something to enjoy. A great spot for an afternoon snack and a glass of wine during the summer with their outdoor seating.

We loved Purple Cafe in Kirkland, and now we love your Woodinville restaurant too! The food was fantastic and our waiter was handling a huge crowd, but he managed to get us our food and drinks quickly with such a friendly manner. We'll definitely be back :)

Who doesn't love Purple?! I always get the Mac and cheese, it's the best around you won't get better. They make recommendations of wine to pair well with your entree. Not just a place for a special occasion we frequent here at least 1x a month.

The Purple Cafe & Wine Bar is the perfect spot for that business lunch, lunch with friends or out-of-town guests. The menu selections are all excellent and everyone in your party will find
a good selection to pick from. If you are wine fans the list is excellent. You might even get a peek at a local winemaker enjoy lunch here with friends.
With a warm and comfortable setting to excellent service we always recommend the Purple Cafe when dining in Woodinville.

The food was fantastic but what really stood out was our server Briana. She was amazing, so enthusiastic, warm and knowledgeable. Also, the manager Leshon, came by the table and chatted with us. She too was wonderful. I apologize if I didn't get the spelling of the names correct.

Took my mother in law in for a post Christmas meal. Everything was delicious. We shared a bottle of Chablis which was the perfect light wine to go with our meal. We loved everything except the multiple screaming babies that were there. The meal was great the service was even better. Thank you for such a nice night.

Purple Café delivers a consistent high quality service, food and wine. My wife and I have enjoyed this restaurant for many years and plan to continue to do so. When the weather is warm we enjoy eating outside with our dog, Gabriella.

We did a team lunch on a Friday afternoon and had a great time. Our team of 5 was sat right by the door which was a little inconvenient because it made it chilly with the door opening and closing often and people constantly walking by our table. The restaurant was packed. Our server was attentive, our food was yummy and overall we had a great experience. I like Purple and I will be back.
